So let me get this straight, you guys are encouraging crappy guns that are likely to hurt someone to further glorify poverty of the mind? Isn't the WCW enough?

they don't have to be unsafe, mini combustions couldn't kill a fly if they exploded.

a ghetto contest would be bamf

however safety would be of paramount concern with everyone building a ghetto spudgun because even something that looks like its harmless and you think is harmless can be dangerous i know from experience

i was once hitting a lighter that i thought was out of gas with a hammer about the third blow to the casing

on the third blow it blew sending plastic shrapnel into my knuckle

so it might be possible to have a most innovative ghetto spudgun contest

like come uo with some new ideas for stuff made of junk and such

Stupid quote of the now:
joestue "The chamber is rated to 100 psi, it don't say that on the side, but the 2 inch stuff is rated to 300, so by analogy..."
"only the last two feet hear the end is black cellular core"
"I'm taking it to 300 psi"

Im in! I'll construct the sh!t pipe when i am drunk, always do my "best" work then!
Great idea Spudfarm :) :D

I think there should be a rule about tools used too, like only allowed to use a butter knife and a skewer, and NO glue. hehehhee.
